Final Fantasy II spearheads this week's Nintendo Download, which explores the mysterious worlds of fantasy, horror, and learning Spanish.

It might not be Final Fantasy XIII, but Final Fantasy II, or Final Fantasy IV in Japan, makes up for the lack of newness with sheer quality. Lightning, Snow, and Hope have nothing on Cecil, Rydia, and Edward, though the latter might be a bit too spoony for some tastes.

For more fantasy, check out Max & the Magic Marker, Press Play's WiiWare game about a boy drawing his way through his imagination, or Elemental Masters, a fantasy-based trading card game for DSiWare from lbxgames.

If horror is more to your liking, Chillingo's Dracula: Undead Awakening appears on WiiWare and DSiWare this week, with early teen horror fans getting another dose of Too Ghoul for School in EA's Flips: The Bubonic Builders for the DSi.

Check out the gallery for the official descriptions, and remember, if you hate galleries, you'll love clicking here.
